he's talking about a NEON? what a bunch of bs. i doubt a neon could do over 120, let alone 160. i HAVE raced an m5, for real, in my talon, and i barely beat him, that car was very fast for being a large luxury car.

you can tell he is talking about a neon, because he has pace setter headers and a polished valve cover.

Here it is:


EMBARRASED A 2000 M5!!
by DH, age - 20, male

posted December 23, 1999

I WAS DRIVING ALONG ON THE FREEWAY DOING ABOUT 90 MPH WHEN
I SEE THIS BIMMER WITH CHEESY BLUE LIGHTS COMING UP FAST IN
MY REAR VIEW. WITH THIS BEING THE CASE I DECIDED THAT I
WANTED TO SPANK YET ANOTHER OVERWEIGHT, OVERRRATED BMW,
WANNABE FAST CAR. SO I DOWNSHIFTED INTO THIRD THEN ALL OF A
SUDDEN THE ROAR OF MY QUICKPIPE AND VIBRANT BEGAN TO FILL
THE AIR WITH MUSIC. THE BMW PASSES ME AND NOTICE ITS ONE OF
THOSE NEW M5'S EVERYBODY IS RAVING ABOUT.IT'S SOME OLD
PHUCK DRIVING THIS GERMAN POS.SO I FLOOR IT AND MATCH HIS
SPEED. I START TO TAUNT THIS GUY IN HIS POS LUXO-CRAP BY
PLAYING WITH THE THROTTLE AND LURCHING BACK AND FORTH AT
100 MPH!! THIS DUMBASS WANNABE RACE CAR DRIVER NOTICES MY
ANTICS AND DECIDES TO TRY AND SHOW OFF THIS POS!! HE FLOORS
IT AS I SEE HIM ACCELLERATE RATHER BRISKLY. I RESPOND BY
FLOORING IT AND POWER SHIFTING INTO FOURTH. I WIND OUT 4TH
AND AM ONCE AGAIN EVEN WITH HIM. IN FIFTH GEAR I START TO
PULL
HARD ON HIS DUMB ASS AND BEFOR I KNEW IT I WAS QUICKLY
APPROACHING THE 160 MPH MARK!! I WAS FREAKIN SCARED BECAUSE
I
NEVER KNEW MY R/T COULD DO THIS KINDA SPEED!! HELL, I'VE
DOND 150 WITH EASE BUT NEVER HAD THE BALLS TO TRY AND MAX
IT
OUT. ANYWAYS, THIS DUMBPHUCKK WAS ABOUT 5 CARS BEHIND ME AS
I LET OFF AT 159!! I LET THE BMW CATCH UP AND PROCEED TO
PULL EVEN WITH HIM CRUISING AT 140 MPH. I LOOKED OVER AND
THIS GUY GAVE ME THE THUMBS UP, HOWEVER, I WAS UNIMPRESSED
WITH THE PERFORMANCE OF HIS POS SO I GAVE HIM A BIG THUMBS
DOWN!! HE KINDA LOOKED SHOCKED SO I GAVE HIM THE FINGER
AND TOLD HIM TO PHUK OFF. I TOOK THE NEXT EXIT AND WENT
HOME, ONCE AGAIN PROUD OF EMBARASSING YET ANOTHER BMW!!

I LOVE MY 98 R/T AND HAVE MODIFIED IT HEAVILY ( QUICKPIPE
INTAKE, PACESETTER HEADER, VIBRANT EXHAUST, 4" TESTPIPE,
UDP,
SPEED DELIMITER, EIBACH, AND POLISHED VALVE COVER ) I CANT
WAIT TO GET MY TURBO NEXT MONTH WHEN I SHOULD BE RUNNING
LOW 11'S TO HIGH 10'S.

I'LL KEPP YOU GUYS POSTED!!


SINCERELY,

DON H

realize that most of these stories on speedonline.com are BS...and i think he's talking about the Stealth R/T not neon...it is equivilant to the 3000GT SL so in other words...its slow as hell

I can't believe none of you guys got it yet..... Obviously he's not talking about a Neon R/T.... Obviously he's not talking about a Stealth R/T..... Well now which R/T would be able to beat a 394 horsepower BMW M5..... He's talking about a Dodge Viper R/T....

Are you being Sarcastic my friend? A BMW M5 will do 0-60 in 4.8 seconds, the quarter mile in 13.3 seconds/108mph and reach 150mph in 30.0 seconds (Car & Driver, March 2000)... You must have a darn fast Talon..

no, i am being serious. the talon also barely beat a brand new porshe 911 carrera convertible on Rt 70, near 695. it was great, he had temp tags and all, he had just dropped 85 grand for this, and here some punk in a talon beats him.

other notable talon kills:
TT RX7
00 Z28
98 Z28
Crx with Integra motor

i wouldn't call the talon Fast , but i wouldn't call it slow either

HELLO....read my earlier post, he is NOT talking about a viper, he is NOT talking about a stealth!

he mentions PACE SETTER HEADERS and a polished valve COVER not coverS indicating an inline motor, which eliminates both the stealth and the viper. read it again if you don't believe me

hmmmmmm.... Maybe he forgot to add the S in covers, cause the only way the story sounds believeable is if it were a Viper....

Guys, I'm kinda confused on what kind of "R/T" was he driving at that time (A Viper or a NEON????). If it was a NEON, IMHO, I think that Don H (or DH, or whatever his name was) must be high on pot... There's no way a NEON can beat an M5.
